Five Things Friday: 5?s – Life After Weight Loss

Happy Friday everyone! It’s raining here. It’s got me in some type of mood, but life must go on. I am here this week with part II of the video from last week. FYI: This will be the last 5?s about weight loss for a while, probably like 2 months. I just wanted to round up the most frequently asked questions in a video for people to watch. I have a few other weight loss related videos that will hit the queue eventually but this will be the last of these kind for a while.

I think you should ask me other questions about something else though. Travel? Fitness? Cooking? Time management? Television/books? Hit me up.

I now present to you: 5?s – Life After Weight Loss

I hope everyone has a great weekend and finds the video helpful.

My friend Aimee posted a link from Sophieologie about 1200 calories and I… View Post

People said it couldn’t be done and there were a lot of haters out there, but I’m still beating the odds every day. That’s not to say I haven’t gained… View Post

Why wait? Start your new routine today.

Why wait? Start your new routine today.

“I’m going to start my new diet and workout routine on Monday.” This is a statement that many people including myself have uttered at one time or another. Sometime during the week before, we make a conscious effort to get our plan in place. We write out what we’re going to do and what we can and can’t eat. We’re excited and are so ready for that upcoming Monday. My question to you is: Why wait until Monday? There’s six other days of the week. Any day is the “perfect” day to make a plan of action. Start today if… View Post
